Juli Peretó, professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Valencia, and Carlos Briones, chief scientist of the CSIC, have explained the evolutionary origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and have denied one of the current hoaxes on the pathogen, such as its creation in a laboratory. In an article published on the dissemination platform The Conversation, the two researchers point to the origin of SARS-CoV-2 by natural selection from others of the Betacoronavirus genus.

A study by the University of Valencia, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the Public Entity of Sanitation of Waters of the Valencian Community has detected genetic material of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in untreated wastewater from the Valencia metropolitan area previous to February 24, the date on which the first Valencian case of COVID-19 was known. The remnants of the virus disappeared after the water treatment, as the analysis confirm. To monitor and detect genetic material of the virus in this type of water, the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development, Climatic Emergency and Ecological Transition of the Valencian Government has proposed an agreement with the University of Valencia, the Jaume I University of Castellón and the Miguel Hernández University.

The genomic analysis has been carried out by the Joint Unit on Infection and Public Health of the University of Valencia and the Foundation for the Promotion of Health and Biomedical Research of the Valencian Community Fisabio, the Research Group in Molecular Epidemiology, both led by Fernando González Candelas, Professor of Genetics and researcher at the Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (I2SysBio) of the University of Valencia and CSIC, and the Fisabio Sequencing and Bioinformatics Service coordinated by Giuseppe d’Auria and Llúcia Martínez.
